Book Week NI

16th Oct 2020

Book Week NI is a joint initiative arising from the partnership between BBC Northern Ireland and Libraries NI and will take place during 19 to 25 October.

This year’s theme is Stories and Storytelling; focusing on stories that matter to each one of us and encouraging everyone to participate and share stories from books that matter to them.

The aim is to inspire people of all ages to discover or rediscover the joy of reading by pledging to take 15 minutes to read during and preferably throughout the week. This is particularly prevalent with key messages such as encouraging parents and carers to read and share stories with children.

To encourage this there will be a different theme each day with suggestions of books, eBooks and eMagazines to read.  Also, themed displays will take place in libraries across Northern Ireland and the BBC’s programming will link to Book Week NI across its air waves. More information on the themes is available on our website
